The Autism Society Philippines (ASP) is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to the well-being of persons on the autism spectrum disorder. We envision a society where Filipinos on the spectrum become the best of their potentials -- self-reliant, independent, productive, socially-accepted citizens of an Autism-OK Philippines.

DepEd honors outstanding SPED centers and teachers

DepEd organized the search for outstanding SPED centers and teachers through the Bureau of Elementary Education SPED Division to honor the efforts of the schools, teachers and officials, in supporting and delivering the education agenda to children with special needs.

“Only those with a great deal of intelligence, fortitude, and love can nurture learners in an atypical setting. This recognition is a small thing compared to all the difference you’ve made for the future generation,” lauded DepEd Secretary Armin Luistro.

Baguio City SPED Center garnered the top award as the best SPED center in the country, followed by the La Union SPED Center in the City of San Fernando; and the Kapianan SPED Center in Tuguegarao City.

In the individual category, Mary Joy Suganob of Aklan emerged as the best teacher for children with autism. In second place is Marilou Mina of Cavite City; followed by Eloida Mabiog of Marinduque in third place.

Winners were given cash gifts and plaques. But clearly, when public teachers and learning institutions elevate the standards of education and intervention for their students, the true winners are the special learners in their care.

ASP extends its heartfelt thanks and congratulations to all the winners. The full list of winners can be found at the DepEd official website.
